Sofia Vergara is in the early stages of having a surrogate baby, the New York Post reports. If true, Sofia Vergara will be joining a handful of celebrities who, too, opted for a surrogate.
The baby will be biologically Vergara and fiance Nick Loeb's, and the child's host is said to be a close girlfriend of Vergara's. “A procedure has taken place, and Sofia and Nick will find out in a few weeks if it was successful, if the surrogate is pregnant, and if they will become parents," a source close to Vergara told the Post.
It was not clear if she chose surrogacy because her career at the moment is skyrocketing: a new season of Modern Family is filming, she has a K-Mart fashion line, and is in talks with a number of movie producers for upcoming roles, the Post said.
Vergara is one of a number of celebrities who have chosen to conceive a child through surrogacy, a process still controversial in the US, in which a woman carries a child for another couple.
